Let’s delve deeper to find out the intrinsic value of Asian Paints Stock.

About the Company

The company has 50+ years of market leadership in India. They have a dealer network of 65,000+ and are a leader across all geographies except the Kashmir region in India. 

Asian Paints have deeply penetrated the Indian market down to the rural economy where they sell distemper paints, to the automobile sector where they currently have 20% of the total market.

 The major competitors are Kansai Nerolac and Berger paints in India.

These companies, however, have not been able to establish a solid market presence and compete with Asian paints in the organized sector. The company is also focused on R&D and introduces 25 color additions every year.

They also have installed paint dispensing (NNG) machines with almost all retailers which saves them warehousing and encourages retailers to sell Asian Paint products.

Step 4: Calculating the Terminal Value of Asian Paints Stock

Terminal value (TV) is the value of a business or project beyond the forecast period when future cash flows can be estimated.

It assumes that a business will grow at a set growth rate forever after the forecast period. Terminal value often comprises a large percentage of the total assessed value.

Cost of Capital 8.54%
Terminal Value 1226740.34
Terminal Value: Asian Paints Stock

Step 5: Calculating the Discount Rate

DCF analysis helps assess the viability of a project or investment by calculating the present value of expected future cash flows using a discount rate.

Here we use the Weighted average cost of capital (WACC) to discount the cash flow.

The below table from the excel model shows the calculation of WACC for Asian Paints Valuation.
